Bible: Daniel 2:40-43; 9:27; 8:23
2:40 Then there will be a fourth kingdom, one strong like iron. Just like iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything, and as iron breaks in pieces 1 all of these metals, 2 so it will break in pieces and crush the others. 3 2:41 In that you were seeing feet and toes 4 partly of wet clay 5 and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom. Some of the strength of iron will be in it, for you saw iron mixed with wet clay. 6 2:42 In that the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, the latter stages of this kingdom will be partly strong and partly fragile. 2:43 And 7 in that you saw iron mixed with wet clay, so people will be mixed 8 with one another 9 without adhering to one another, just as 10 iron does not mix with clay.
9:27 May God enlarge Japheth’s territory and numbers! 1
May he live 2 in the tents of Shem
and may Canaan be his slave!”
